VeganYANerds - I totally understand the issues with library books! One of my libraries gives you a month and the other only 3 weeks and if I have books out from both it can be really hard to read them all before they’re due!

Awkward sounds interesting!

Jasmine Rose - I love all things Disney World! I’ve always been really attracted to everything about it for some reason.
Awkward was cute. Definitely a good read if you want a fun contemporary.
Happy reading this week 😀

Young Adult Book Review: Lexapros and Cons by Aaron Karo - […] a girl; I totally get it. We’re complicated. We’re emotional! This is why reading a book like Curveball or Paper Towns and now, Lexapros and Cons, is like splashing cold water on my face ala a Neutrogena […]

VeganYANerds - Estelle!!! As soon as you said buy this book I went and added it to my to-read list. I’m about to do another book swap, maybe I should ask for this because it sounds great.
